Memorial Wall

The Memorial Wall next to Fergus Chapel gives families a quiet place to remember those who have gone before us. Created by Paul Poberezny to serve as a place where family and friends could honor their loved ones in dignity, the first ceremony was held at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 1989.

We are grateful to have these tributes as part of EAA's history and be a place where legacies are forever honored. Center to the Memorial Wall is a monument formed by thousands of stones from EAA members across the world, and bronze plaques are installed annually on the adjacent walls to remember those who have gone west.

The Memorial Wall Ceremony will be on August 1, 2021, at 10 a.m., located at the Memorial Wall. This heartwarming ceremony includes a poignant reading of inductees' names, a breathtaking missing man flight formation, and concludes with the playing of taps.
